    I would be very wary. It is a for-profit organization, and CRI does not endorse Smith's views on spiritual warfare.

    Have you tried prayer and fasting as recommended by Jesus?

    Theophostic Prayer Ministry acknowledges that everything we know, sense or feel is rooted in mind information that was accumulated during life experiences.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Sounds like a spin off of Scientology.
    -------------------------------------------------
    The word Scientology literally means "the study of truth." It comes from the Latin word "scio" meaning "knowing in the fullest sense of the word" and the Greek word "logos" meaning "study of."

    Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life. The Scientology religion comprises a body of knowledge extending from certain fundamental truths.

    The Theophostic Prayer Ministry leader has claimed to change some of the teachings, but there are still serious concerns about it. Here are some links:
